Pathfinder WoTR
images (5)
Okay fags help me out I started my first run on core AND aimed for sadistic game design achievementt as added challenge. So far I've reached early chapter 2 with around 10 rests or so but the game looks like a fucking zombie survivor with how scarce your spells are and how tired everyone is between travels when you need to limit your rests to account for their overuse on lategame harder chapters.

I just got abundant casting on two of my most spell-consuming characters [Me (Eldrich archer) and Daeran] so I guess it will help a little even though in most fights I must still rely on rng and reload at least five times rather than burn out spells. I've been thinking of getting the Midnight Isles and Last Sarkorian dlcs too, but can I finish those with a minimal toll on rests? Otherwise I will keep playing the base game. Also as an unintended extra layer of challenge, for the sake of rp my chaotic character is going to become a Demon which I heard is a very rest consuming mythic path ability-wise so well I guess I just won't be using its powers a lot lol.

Choose your own adventure games
You will never be a real baneblood. You have no honor, you have no nobility, you have no wealth. You are men twisted by envy and lies into a crude mockery of nature’s perfection.

All the “validation” you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people mock you. Your clubmates are disgusted and ashamed of you, your Takaran “friends” laugh at your ghoulish bane behind closed doors.

The Saints are utterly repulsed by you. Thousands of years of evolution have allowed men to sniff out baneless with incredible efficiency. Even Wulframites who “pass” look uncanny and unnatural to a commoner. Your bane is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a drunk noblewoman home with you, she’ll turn tail and bolt the second she gets a whiff of your diseased, dilapidated manor.

You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it’s going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.

Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - you’ll buy a revolver (Garing, Gutierrez, and Truscott™), load a percussion cap, put in a shot, and plunge into the cold abyss. Your servants will find you, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. They’ll bury you with a headstone marked with your name and """""noble"""""house, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a Wulframite is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a skeleton that is unmistakably a baneless.

This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.

Starfield is such a disappointment
>pronouns in bio
>over half of the NPC's in New Atlantis are black
>>New Atlantis is a boring, chrome filled shopping mall devoid of soul
>every single companion is forgettable, and none of them have interesting designs
>NPC banter involves incredibly shallow complaints against capitalism, and is overall just cringe worthy
I have never been so disappointed in a game as I have been in Starfield. The mechanics are a genuine step up from the catastrophe that Fallout 4 induced by gutting the dialogue and gutting skills, the ship building is genuinely well done as well as the crafting and exploration, but holy shit everything else is abysmal. All of the weapon designs are generic, so while it still *has* Fallout 4's crafting system, it's nowhere near the same because you can't make anything that looks cool. 90% of the space suits are ugly, and you have to be an actual pirate just to wear something in space that doesn't make you look like a special needs kid. The whole NASApunk aesthetic is unflattering and soulless, and all of the food design suffers for it because all of it is in bins and plastic packaging. There's nothing interesting or captivating about this world, and all of it feels lazy and rushed. The religions are all boring, and you're forced to choose between redditors, some weird syncretic monotheists who don't even really have their stuff thought out aside from belief in some sort of God, and then a snake cult. The factions are boring too and the fact that there's so few of them makes the world feel small despite spanning literally across galaxies; and it only feels even smaller considering how much you're forced to fast travel constantly. This game is such an utter let down..

Sole Survivor Shepard
You SPECTREs are all racist
This would have been 5 times as based of a backstory choice if they actually mentioned that Shepard killed the Thresher Maw in 2177. Instead he just presumably fled like a coward though, failing to even avenge his fallen 50 squadmates, right? They don't go into much detail about his fight with the Thresher Maw. Could have formed some serious bro-ship connection between Commander Shepard and Urdnot Wrex, what with how they both managed the impressive feat of killing a Thresher Maw on foot early in their careers, while losing a lot of good soldiers in the process.

Its somewhat hard to even headcanon that he killed that Thresher Maw, seeing as how Corporal Toombs survived being eaten by it. So there's some kind of implication that a Cerberus squad later killed and dissected that Thresher Maw.

Is Earthborn/Sole Survivor going to be revealed as the canon choice in Mass Effect 4? Thats the most popular backstory combo among fans probably. Very kino because it highlights how Shepard's hard life growing up on the streets of Earth living the cold blooded gangster lifestyle prepared him for his battle with the Thresher Maw. But it would have been way more kino had he slayed the beast instead of fled however...

The definition of RPGs is retarded
Let‘s take the game Thief for example. It‘s a single-player game tailor-made for the Thief experience.
>you have a sword, but don’t know any combos or special attacks
>you have a wide variety of offensive and utility arrows
>you have lockpicks, special equipment like flash bombs and mines
>in the darkest shadows you are invisible
For some reason Thief gets called an immersive sim, but not an RPG unlike Deus Ex, which is also an RPG.
Most plebs (like you) would probably agree (if you are honest) that Thief would instantly be an RPG, if they added a level-up system. You don’t just unlock new equipment in later levels, but you also unlock new abilities, which were gatekept until then.
Or what if Thief added a second and third character? A warrior and a mage?

The conventional definition of an RPG discriminates against linear, tailor-made experiences for a certain class archetype. I mean do you think it’s immersive, if every quest has the obligatory speech check to skip it, the backdoor in the quest giver‘s house to conveniently sneak in, the side-quest which has an NPC be thankful to you to get the same result as the speech check? Is that immersive? Especially if you qualify for all of these things at the same time?
There is also another type of discrimination going on. Thief is not an Action game. Immersive Sims aren’t a genre. It needs to fit in somewhere. And Thief is basically just the immersive simulation of a typical cRPG, which abstracts things like hiding, lockpicking, climbing with skill checks. Thief simulates these things directly, instead of abstracting it. This just means you are like the Codexfags, who cry when games are trying different things than just copying the tabletop formula 1:1 to the pc.

I’m on Act 6 of Ballad of the Little Princess. It’s really charming if simple.

I wish they’d dubbed the songs in English as well (that was a huge part of the charm in Rhapsody for me) but I recognize that these two sequels getting localized at all is a miracle.

There’s almost no English guides out there, so I’m a little paranoid about missing out on puppets and side quests/missable in general.

Is it me or Rogue Trader doesn't really work well as standard-fare CRPG given the player character's status? You aren't some schmuck and every time I met NPCs in the first solar system the only logical dialogue option was "Werserian, tell this faggot who he's dealing with before we blast him for such disrespect and rudeness." Taking quests like "have you seen this literally who man on another planet" from nobodies doesn't make sense either because you aren't some interplanetary bellboy. I could look the other way in Kingmaker because you were just a random adventurer tricked into a role of Baron. I still could look the other way in WotR because you were a nobody who rose to military power and were dealing with more or less local conflict. But here you're at the helm of a ship with thousands people on board, traveling across vast space. It doesn't make much sense.

I was originally planning on getting it for my Switch but the graphics are genuinely really pretty, I was pretty skeptical about the 3D environments from the trailers and screenshots but it looks great when you're playing it.

I don't really have any complaints except the combat is really fucking easy in the start, but when you get your party member and leave for the adventure it suddenly gets much, much harder.
Oh, usually I like vidya dubs but this one is just awful. Do yourself a favor and use Japanese voices, particularly the "SO2SE" option.

Because it never hurts to share:
FF7 is a story of idol worship, false gods, and Man's tendency to want to be God. All these remakes and expansions of the FF7 world miss the mark because they forget the foundation that made FF7 a profound story.

Gaia is God.
The lifestream is the Ruah. The divine breath of God. The source of life as such.
Jenova is Satan. The enemy of God, the deceiver. The new god. The false god.
Shinra is the world of Man. Man worships Jenova in an attempt to attain godhood. Shinra harnesses the divine breath for selfish gain.
Sephiroth is the antichrist. The son of Satan, and a product of the will of Man. It's no coincidence that Savior Sephiroth has the appearance of a gimped angel.
Weapons are angels. A testament to God's authority.
All the main characters are representations of the Jewish Sephirot. Aspects by which God reveals Itself. Cloud is the Keter, Tifa is the Tifaret, etc. Cloud also obviously represents the Christ in opposition to the antichrist.
Meteor is the ultimate consequence of worshipping Jenova. The ender of worlds.

>"it's not actually hard it just knowledge checks you all the time"
That's absolutely true. Some people like this, some people hate it.

>"it's build autismo isn't actually deep it just has many trap options and bloat"
Another thing many people hate, but many people like it as well.

>"it is super SUPER long and overstays it's welcome"
Yeah. It could probably be cut in half and not lose much substance. I don't mind this tho, as I enjoy testing my builds and different approaches to te game overall. Most of you hate it and it's justifiable.

I love it when the game has garbage trap options, godly OP ones and everything in between. Part of the fun for me is discovering which is which. It satisfies my optimizaiton autism (It extends way beyond RPG number crunching in my case personally) but I totally see why some people don't like it. Games that play it safe and make almost every option equally viable, are almost inherently less fun and bland for min maxxers. I am looking at you Balanceman, fuck you.

Now the question is - Are you a minmaxxing autist like me? Do you want to just install your anime portraits and enjoy the story? Pathfinder can offer something for both, you just have to taper you expectations. If you want to play it totally chill and laid back without reading guides and doing your homework literally, you might even play it on difficulties less than normal. (Depending on how familiar you are with D&D) And I recommend almost never spoon feeding yourself with guides, just learning the info on your own. At least, that's where 90% of the fun came from for me.

Kingmaker is also way WAY better than WOTR. I mean, I am a Pathfinder fan but WOTR is just garbage besides build autismo and some replay value offered by mythic paths. (Also, why is that game so fucking PURPLE? It is a literal eye sore.) If you are getting into Pathfinder please don't start with WOTR.

I remember being a kid and getting FF7. Everyone on the internet crying their hearts out because “omg they killed off Aeris a dear party member”. Bitch please. Before that we had the awesome General Leo. He got killed in cold blood by Kefka. Man had morals despite being in the Empire. Puts himself before his fellow men. And for what? To be killed off by an asshole clown. But nobody cried about General Leo’s death. And I think I know why. It’s because he’s black. The world stopped turning when Aeris died because she’s white and the media only cries when a white woman died. Black man dies and it’s just “musta been in a gang or something”. General Leo is no thug.

holy land
Hat World is an incredible freeware doujin RPG where you choose one of six main characters and play through their unique campaigns. It has an exceptionally good turn-based battle system, some very challenging boss fights, sidescrolling platformer exploration, and great storytelling, visuals, and music all throughout.

Hat World got a high quality fan translation last year and you can download it here:

Hat World fans have recently gotten reason to rejoice: Enu is alive! He survived his cancer surgery and is back at work on his SRPG. Thank god. The world still needs him. You can read more at his (Japanese language) blog:

Name a better layout for classic JRPGs
4 media | 7 replies
Just started picrel for the first time today & I'm really loving the darkness & sparse nature of the world. The dialogue system is my favorite of any RPG so far. One thing I can't shake so far is how mundane many of the quests feel. I've been doing a bunch of Fighters Guild contracts & nearly every one of them is "Go to X...collect Y". Is the main quest better or is it more of the same? For reference, I kept it simple & I'm doing a classic board & sword fighter.

Didn't think in [current year] I'd have to buy a "memory card". I added 2TBs of storage to my PS5 so I can play more than 3 RPGs by Square Enix. How many more games do you think they'll release in the PS5's lifetime?
I should have enough space, right?

I was expecting to play FF7 Rebirth this Fall but they delayed it.

Possibly Lost RPG Maker Game - Annventure Nihilism
Annventure Nihilism
The other day in a Deltarune thread on /v/, some anon mentioned a series of RPG Maker games called Annventure made by a dev who died. I wanted to try out all the games since it was a series, but there's one that I can't seem to find: Annventure Nihilism
I had to use the wayback machine to access the site, but the download from there doesn't work. Even the original creator Luunii/Enflared doesn't host a link on any social media.
The only existence of this game in full that I can find is a vtuber playing through the game:
The link to the game isn't even in the description of more than half of the videos in that playlist.
Other than that, there's maybe one or two pieces of amateur fan art that can be found on google, but most just loops back to the whole Annventure series.
Considering that this was a really unknown game from Game Jolt, I doubt anyone would even recognize it, let alone know where it is.
